Curul, also known as Surla. is a village in Candrapur tahsil consisting of two hamlets called as Juna Surla and Gadhi Surla, about 1.60 km. (one mile) apart from each other. The hamlet of Juna (old) Surla lies in the eastward on the wide plain that stretches to the Wainganga river which flows at a distance of 1.60 km. (one mile) from the village. The second hamlet, Gadhi Surla, clusters round the base of a lofty flat-topped eminence on which stood the ancient fort or gadhi from which the hamlet takes its name. There is now no trace of the fort save a few remains of the parapet wall, but the mound is still smoothed and the sides of the escarpment steep and difficult of ascent except by the one sloping path on the north. In 1857, to save themselves from the attack of Bapurav the inhabitants took refuge in this fort and broke the charge of Bapurav's horsemen as they attempted to ride the steep escarpment by rolling down cart-wheels fixed on their axles, which frightened the horses and broke their legs. There are a number of ruined temples, one of which contains a pillar with the name of the ubiquitous ' Makardhvaja Jogi, 700' carved on it. The Mul-Camorsi road passes through the village and the ' Juna Curul Ghat' is still a ford over the Wainganga where a good deal of traffic passes. In 1961 the village had a population of 3,881 against 3,770 in 1951. There is a primary school, a post, a medical practitioner and a rest house. A large tank lies at the foot of the aforementioned mound. It is well kept and waters a large area. Rice, jovar and wheat are the staple crops. There is a large colony of Kurumvars in the village who feed their flocks on the uplands and in the wide plains of the Wainganga. They manufacture a large quantity of kambals or rough woollen blankets and sell  them at market places on bazar days.
